Steampunks!

A little bit fashiony, a little bit boudoir – this Steampunk themed photo shoot sent me weak at the knees! Inspired by Tim Burton, Alice in Wonderland, Sherlock Holmes, New Orleans and Dita Von Teese, photographer Kamila couldn’t wait to put together a shoot like this.

Parisian Super Glam

Methinks you’ll like these lovely Parisian, Moulin Rouge and super glam inspired wedding ideas from The Good Life Special Events.

“When styling this photo shoot, we wanted to create a romantic vintage atmosphere with a twist. Something vibrant, elegant, and out-of-the-box. Having been to the Moulin Rouge cabaret in Paris, we tied in details and rich colors reminiscent of our visit. The rich reds, deep purple irises, and black accents were intended on creating perhaps a non-traditional wedding palette. Tucking black feathers into deep, velvety red roses and contrasting purple irises, our floral pieces emitted a tone of a classic wedding romance while being a bit off-beat. Sheet music was rolled into scrolls and synced with crystal drops for a little touch of whimsy. Gorgeous hand-painted place cards accented our ruby French brocade linen and black satin napkins gave a punch of interest. All of these elements came together seamlessly to create a wedding celebration that is timeless, a bit sexy, and just radiating romance.”

Creativity Running Wild

I have to be honest, I’ve been gagging to share Aubrey & Marshall’s wedding ever since photographer’s Stacie & Geoffrey (you may remember them from their own – way too damn cool wedding) sent me a sneak peek…not only because of how rad this wedding actually is, but because I have secretly been harboring a photographic crush on Lang Photographers (I’m probably their biggest Twitter stalker!)

Aubrey & Marshall diy-ed their whole wedding with very little budget – they just let their creativity run wild! Everything from the origami to the curtain, from the invitation to the pinwheels was constructed and created by the pair and I am dying over here! Oh tell me your love it as much as I do…

British Boudoir

This fabulous Boudoir/Pin up style shoot was set up by British photographer Shaneen Rosewarne Cox.
“My Make up artist is fabulous at creating that seductive, lashtastic pin up look” She told me “She also styled the models hair and I loved how the retro bouncy curls turned out. Accessories are all mine and are mostly props from the studio. The STUNNING blue Manolo Blahnik shoes are actually my ‘something blue’ from my own wedding day. All in all it was a really fun day full of bucks fizz, pearls, blue shoes and vogue magazine!! A perfect way to spend a Sunday in my opinion. “
 

A Wedding on Water

Julie & John got married in September 2008 at Luss Pier in Loch Lomond, Scotland. Although originally from Manchester, they chose this location as it was perfect for their ideal wedding – small and intimate – with only about 30 of their closest friends and family. They hired a boat from Sweeney’s Cruises where they had their ceremony and drinks. Afterward they walked along the beach to the Lodge on Loch Lomond where they had their meal and the rest of their evening.

Geek Chic

I have been dying to feature a photo shoot by Flory Photo in ages, and I think Curtis & Vali’s shoot has given me the perfect opportunity. Photographer and friend Joel Flory actually shot their wedding back in 2002 – his first – and being such great friends with this pair, this shoot was extra special to them all.

Is anyone else as crazy about those geek-chic glasses as I am!? So. Much. Fun!  His suit was Express for Men and her dress was an 8yr old Jessica McClintock that she wore on their wedding day.
